A Plot Full of Twists and Experiments
The story of Cinderella is set in the fictional town of Belleville, a place so beautiful that it’s literally a fairytale in itself. Everyone in the town is committed to keeping it looking so beautiful, but Cinderella is not.
She is beautiful, fierce, and has a great distaste for the unreal fairytale she is living in. She has been trying to escape and is facing loneliness, too, as she refuses to partake in the showy activity of the townspeople.
A monarchy rules the town, and the incumbent heir to the throne, Prince Charming, has suddenly disappeared. After he suddenly goes missing, his little brother and one of Cinderella’s best friends, Prince Sebastian, is left as the throne’s head. But Sebastian is not able to stay humble when he gets this spotlight. His friendship with Cinderella dwindles, and he is soon becoming more and more like his brother.
However, despite his personality change, Cinderella starts feeling attraction towards Prince Sebastian, and sparks soon fly between them. Amidst all this, the Queen plans to hold the Royal Wedding. And soon, the revolutionary fairy Godmother steps in with the power to do anything she wants.
So what does Cinderella finally do? Does she marry the Prince? Or does she escape the town like she wanted to all along? To find out, you’ll have to watch the show. So book your tickets!
